    Right Place at the Right Time

    That's what it takes to get the good stuff.
    Being in the right place at the right time with a pocket full of cash.

    I was supposed to be dropping off today's packages at the Post Office, and then come right back so I could try to get caught up with my work.

    Instead of coming right back, I bought a door first.

    Nice door. That will rehandle a lot of maguro bochos.

    Just one big thick piece of veneer. 2&1/2" thick x 35" wide and about 7 foot tall.
    It is a solid, single piece of quartersawn redwood.
    Looking at the endgrain I am guessing that the tree it was cut from had to be about 10+ feet thick.
    The curly figure covers about 1/2 of the slab and then fades.
    Much better curly figure than I can usually get.

    I tried to haggle with the guy but he said "You're just going to cut it up into a bunch of knife handle pieces."
    I asked "How do you know? I don't even know you."
    He said, "It's a small town and my ex works at the Post office".

    I hope you guys notice the commendable self discipline I have by not making any comments like;
    how many cans you know would have to collect to get $34 or what that equates to in dumpster diving time.
    Not even any comments about posting on the forums during happy hour.
    I thought I was exercising remarkable self restraint.
